Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery:

Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. Bariatric procedures also can cause hormonal changes. Most weight-loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery).

The most common bariatric surgery procedures are:

Gastric Bypass

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Adjustable Gastric Band

Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS)

Colorectal Cancer:

Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer in the U.S. But it doesn’t have to be. There is strong scientific evidence that screening for colorectal cancer beginning at age 50 saves lives!

WHAT IS COLORECTAL CANCER?

Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. Cancer is always named for the part of the body where it starts, even if it spreads to other parts of the body later. Colorectal cancer is cancer that occurs in the colon or rectum. The colon is the large intesne or large bowel. The rectum is the passageway that connects the colon to the anus.

Colorectal cancer usually starts from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. A polyp is a growth that shouldn’t be there.

  • Over time, some polyps can turn into cancer.
  • Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.
  • Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early when treatment works best.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COLORECTAL CANCER?

People who have polyps or colorectal cancer don’t always have symptoms, especially at first.

Someone could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. If there are symptoms, they may include:

  • Blood in or on your stool (bowel movement).
  • Pains, aches, or cramps in your stomach that won’t go away.
  • Losing weight and you don’t know why.

If you have any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor. They may be caused by something other than cancer. However, the only way to know what is causing them is to see your doctor

FAQs

SPS Hospitals have various specialised departments for different types of medical issues. In addition to having dedicated Cardiology, Neurology, General Medicine, Rheumatology, etc., we also have a specialised GI and Liver department for our patients.

Patients are usually referred to a liver specialist by a general practitioner after going through their symptoms and test results or suspecting a liver issue. Liver specialists may look at issues like Cirrhosis, alcohol damage to the liver, Hepatitis, Fatty liver disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases or other issues affecting the liver.

A liver transplant is a major surgery which may go on for about 6-12 hours, depending on the condition of the patient.

The patient will also be provided with prime care before and after the surgery to make the recovery period smooth at SPS Hospitals.
